Meat Loaf

Today was Meat Loaf day. Not the “I would do anything for love” – Meat Loaf but meaty gravy bathed meat loaf.
The recipe I was using is from Betty Bossi.
Mix 500g minced meat (half beef half pork) with 100g sausage meat, 1 finely chopped onion, 1 crushed garlic clove, 3 tablespoons red wine, 1 egg, 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs, 1 bunch of parsley finely chopped, 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika and 1.5 teaspoons salt.
Shape your meat loaf and brown it in olive oil on each side.



Add an onion with 1 bayleaf and a few cloves.

Cut up some carrots and put them into the pot with the meat loaf. For the gravy pour 2dl red wine and 2dl beef broth in the pot, bring the sauce to the boil and then let it simmer for 40-50 minutes.

I served the meat loaf with steamed new potatoes, broccoli and courgettes.
